Part two of this deliciousness odyssey presents you dear reader with my two favorites from my visit to de Gascogne (which I also call Heaven!)
The Raspberry Framboise is my kind of desert! The vanilla custard was so light and pure, the raspberries perfectly ripe and plump! They worked so beautifully with the cake around it and the vanilla custard. It was like music was playing in my mouth and I am not kidding.
Now for the breakthrough my favorite Tiramisu of all time! I realize yours truly seems to be hyper enthusiastic pretty much on every post but this is real thing (cue song). Let’s start with the presentation, semi sweet chocolate coffee cup (come on!) filled with a fresh, well balanced Tiramisu, not heavy on the coffee, or coffee liqueur at all! So balanced, so light and incredibly decadent at the same time.
Everything we tried at de Gascogne tasted crazy fresh, and you can tell everything is made with skill, care and high quality very ingredients.
Montreal I bow to your bakeries! As I said before this trip was one of my bestest weekends ever! Thank you to my friends who took us to all these great spots! And thank you Montreal!!!
A bien tout!
